As a volunteer at Weinberg Adult Daycare Center I got to know Alan. As his obit says, he was a sweet and gentle man who everyone at the center loved. I will always have memories of Alan smiling and clapping his hands when I played music at the center. Alan lived life to its fullest and made this world a better place to live in. He will be missed by everyone who Knew him.

I was very shocked to hear of the passing of Allan. I guess i expected him to live forever. I worked at Pikesville Adult Daycare where i first met Allan as was mentioned about his smile. He lit up the room with his smile. Loved his chicken, the Beatles and music in general. Allan would always come into the center with a big HELLO!. Always wore his hats Orioles and Ravens. When this virus is all over and we can all get back to daycare there will be a void. Rest in peace Allan until we meet again.

I was Allan's personal trainer at the JCC before Denard for many years. I used to really look forward to our sessions. He was always happy to see me and always wanted a hug. Allan was one of the most gentle and caring human beings I've ever met. He made a lot of friends at the jcc with his friendly smile. Every session he had members lining up to say hello to him. I was able to see Allan outside of the gym also. He performed in talent shows. He was very impressive as he read poems out loud. I remember going to the movies and dinner with him and my wife. My wife Miriam instantly fell in love with his gentile ways. I always thought I would see him again so this is really difficult. I'm glad I took some pictures and videos of our workout sessions over the years since unfortunately thats all I have left of him. So many memories are popping up in my head. I used to play, "You can call me Al!" By paul simon for him. I would take him to the racketball room and play all kinds of sports with him. He was really in his element playing soccer, racketball, baseball, frisbee, lacrosse, and basketball. Sincerely, Denny Newborn!

Allan Adler

Allan Jacob Adler of Baltimore, Maryland, passed away on May 19, 2020, at the age of 67. He is survived by his “family” of loving and devoted caregivers, Sandy & David Rivlin, Janeka Jordan, Joe Wartzman, William White, Marquis Brown, Cache Milburn, Renda Hall, and Tiffany Coffman. Allan is predeceased by his beloved parents, the late Florence and Philip Adler, beloved grandparents, Abraham and Rebecca Heyman, Uncles Walter, Sidney, and Edward Heyman, and Aunt Thelma Silverman.

Allan was a sweet, gentle soul, full of charm and wit. He always wanted to hug everyone. “One person may not be able to change the world, but Allan’s smile changed our world.” His wittiness, charm, and gentle spirit was infectious. He loved the Orioles and the Ravens. He enjoyed exercising with his trainer, Denard Smith, at the JCC. He also enjoyed attending Camp Greentop in Thurmont, Maryland, and the Weinberg Adult Daycare. Allan’s spirit will always remind us that “It is better to give than to receive.”

Funeral services and interment are private.

Please omit flowers. Contributions in his memory may be sent to the Jewish Community Services, 5750 Park Heights Avenue, Baltimore, MD 21215, Attention: Ann Skinner, or Lifebridge Health Adult Day Services 5400 Old Court Road, Randallstown, MD 21133, attention: Lauri Malin.
